Lost phone

Postby bgd » Fri, 28 Jun 2013 4:30 pm

Lost my phone the other night and replacement will not arrive until Tuesday. Apart from dealing with the red tape involved in replacing it the experience so far has been pretty liberating.

Some observations;
• For the first time in years I’m not instantly contactable
• Travelled home on the bus last night and apart from the girl sleeping in front of me was the only person, as far as I could see, not engrossed with an electronic screen
• JR8 will like the fact that I don’t walk into random people because I’m staring at a screen – actually that’s not really me
• There was a ping in a meeting today and I was the only one that didn’t need to check their phone
• My right pocket feels uncomfortably empty
• I’ll probably have no friends over the weekend
• I can’t instantly check some fact on the internet
• I don’t know anybody’s number

I could get used to this.

I'm not sure if it is liberating. Granted, I'm not the type that stare at the phone ALL the time but it makes me really insecure not having my Google Play ready at hand whenever I need something (contact details, directions, search etc).

I forget and leave my phone in the office more times than I care to remember. Funny thing is, I don't usually remember it until it's time to go to sleep (it's my alarm). It's just a phone to me as I'm farsighted the small screens are a pain in the arse. I do like my Galaxy Tab 10.1 though, but it's not a phone. Actually I like that.
